Have I had a lucid dream? Or was I just dreaming about havin

Here's one experience I've had and I haven't quite found a similiar one yet

I was dreaming one time and after a few moments I also realized that I was dreaming.
Being interested about lucid dreaming and having read some articles about it before I thought: Well, this is my chance.
I tried to alter the dream and it seemed to work. I was in some rooms with my boyfriend. It reminded me of a museum. In the dream, I could make the walls change their colour and things like that. Everytime I felt like I was kind of losing the dream, I held my boyfriend's hand a little bit tighter. And there I was again. We walked through all of the rooms and I showed my boyfriend what I could do. In the end, we kissed each other (even though I knew getting too excited would wake me up).
Then I woke up, confused, and said to my boyfriend: Woah, I think I just had a lucid dream!

And then I woke up for real.

So my question now is: Have I really had a lucid dream? Or have I just, well, dreamed about it?

There's your answer! Sounds like a lucid dream to me.
Dreaming is my drug

First of all yes! And second, this sounds so much like one I had about 9 years ago! I was standing in a cathedral, looking up at all the amazing architecture, and I suddenly realized, I had EYES in my dream! Like I could feel the experience of looking through them, if that makes sense. I got really excited and wanted to see if I could close my dream eyes. I did, and everything went dark, then I opened them and the dream was still there! THEN, I became aware of my physical eyes, and decided to try to open those! i carefully opened them just a slit and I could see my bedroom just barely, then I closed them again and I was STILL in the dream! My bf (now my husband) was there, as he usually is when I lucid dream, just looking around amused and smiling as if to say, "huh, so this is what you dream about." Later I left the cathedral and was walking in the snow. I met a woman on the path and excitedly told her, "Quick, tell me something memorable so I won't forget this dream!" and she pulled back her hood and showed me pointed ears. "I'm an elf," she said. And sure enough when I woke up, I remembered that and everything that came before it. SO FUN!
